Track Name: Building a Haunted House
You are the source of all
the shaman of my pain
You are the murderer
stole my precious gifts
Your coward army stands
something like an oak
They're just some crazy words
I'm compelled to say

Your symbols decorate the halls
Above-ground coffins, grave remorse

You set events in ways
to guarantee my death
You took to wringing out
the joy from every day
From shadow you emerge
the quadrupedal twin
In terror we embraced
I screamed 'til I awoke

Your symbols decorate the halls
Above-ground coffins, grave remorse
With eyes so dry from shallow blinking
And breath the faithful sound of ticking...
Track Name: Smoke the Deathless
I met a mystic
on down the road
He told me something
I'd always known
I recognized him
and he was me
He spoke in circles
of DMT

I can't say what he told me
language fails to clarify
let's just say he saw right through me
prophesied that I would die

Won't you fade out, come and smoke the deathless?
white vapor floating away
as you watch your world dissolving
who is left to be afraid?

He said to meet him
beside the sea
The water healing
from which we came
Toward the mountain
take highway one
Back to the garden
we'll smoke as One

Something tells me when I go there
I won't see your face the same
Why not trace the route that's taken
so we can find Us once again
Track Name: A Mustard Seed
I found substance that keeps me alive
watching my airplane fall from the sky
Too much focus on being alive
melting my ice cube, let's go for a ride

Cancel your research, delve into black
Chaos is funny and warm and reveals
the paradigm false and pillz are on sale
Shatter your filters, embrace the "unreal"

You go and I'll stay and pray
The cold grip, slow drip, now slip
I keep calling but the phone is crushed, your ears sewn shut
So come on deprivate, meditate and listen
Track Name: Thou Art That
Down in a hole
no way to speak – no hope
untie this venom
in loss – in lack

Pictures of Home
you thought you'd thrown away
now see them hanging
you put them there

You see It starting to unveil
Release and stillness will prevail
Like silence rendered by the snow
Evaporate, renounce, un-know

Faraway shore
You never left so you
can never go back
So say goodbye

Awareness restored
The hologram confess
how it is written
at One, at Rest

Freedom in being
A fractal's grace is more
than the external
Guilt falls away

Lunar extinction
Forsaking birth and death
Vibrating Prana
you burn in bliss

You see It starting to unveil
Release and stillness will prevail
Like silence rendered by the snow
Evaporate, renounce, un-know
In dreamless sleep awaken Now
in Now abide, embody Light
the Light vibrates its Unity
now Unified, no you or me
Track Name: Born in Captivity
I want to build a mirror
I need to feel the other
If I don't seem alone
you might see that I'm a faker

Constant-thought catastrophe
all to feed the little me
cutting down the elder trees
all to extinguish their thought-bubbles

Superseded, overthrown
beast is showing great renown
all you see is what he's shown
all the warrior sees is adversaries

Mother Gaia testifies
burn the veil that covers eyes
see the inner paradise
be your Unified true nature

Why would illumined wells run dry?
Pain in separation
How will she gouge our plastic eyes?
She embodies Union
What gnosis borne from great abyss?
Fear creates the dark outside
What knowledge calls the lighted mist?
Dark that opens third eye

You strive for the false
implanted occult
no meaning, no meaning
Conform to the world
close all channels in
no meaning, no meaning
More symbols arise
let drowning reprise
no meaning, defeated
Track Name: Derail
The path is long and involved
that's why there is no escaping
Attached to the rail
that twists and sails
past all but the very last station

Derail that train
into the pain
Derail that train

The cage of your own design
has taken a life of its own
Grinding your keys
the ringmaster sees
the seeker is deep in the hollow
Track Name: Psilocybe
I can see your million forms
All your colors, shape inform me
Stolen from our forest home
Vedic hymns induce recursion

Glass onion, peel away
illusion veil, reveal The Way
the holy fractal is enduring
The tessellated sea
it burns without, yet it is me
I cease in psychedelic fullness

Sparks from charcoal indicate
Flavored smoke unravel skyward
Psilocybe perforate
Sacrament of cosmic scholar

As the celebration endures its own narcissism
as dry, cracked hands clap-slap with blood
as we all open our arms to devour each other
a lamb begins to roar

See the fractal permeate
Vishnu breathes the mystic lotus
Maya burn and transmutate
Godflesh, soma, utter Prana
Track Name: Come Home
Bitter and isolated
the long, dry tree
Nobody passes
the straw man pleads

Smitten you stare at the moon, she's grace
Oceans obey her appeal, levitate

So come home girl I need you
you calm the voice in my head
Saturday's near me and Sunday we're hiding in bed

Her shadow hides in phases
Her mirror shines me
Magnetic seeing
With vision she cleaves

Sinking you're calling her
Union drifts farther away
Eyes terror-fixated
smiling with irony's dread
Patient, she's pulling now
using your forces combined
Parallel hemispheres dancing
we're no longer blind

So see
See that we are One
